The flamingo pick facade of the Butterfly Beach Hotel Barbados is hard to miss. This hotel wants to be noticed, and rightfully so.
Devoid of pomp and flair, this affordable Barbados hotel speaks volumes when it comes to offering the traveler value for the money. It is on my list of favorite cheap Caribbean hotels and one to consider when vacationing on a budget.
But don’t be misguided by the words “cheap” and “budget”. That would be a big mistake. This hotel offers plenty to travelers looking for cheap beach vacations. Here’s what the hotel offers.

The Butterfly Beach Hotel Barbados’ convenient location on the main South Coast road makes public transportation a breeze. A quick jaunt farther south and you will find yourself in the fishing village of Oistins, location of the popular weekend fish fry. The hotel is 12 minutes away from the airport and approximately 18 minutes away from Bridgetown, the capital.
There are lots of amenities nearby including lovely white sand beaches, lovely restaurants like Luigi’s Italian Restaurant, sports bars, beach bars, night clubs, banks, supermarkets, doctors’ offices, and many more.
The hotel is family-run and operated and faces one of the best white sand beaches of the Barbados South Coast. A small gift and sundry shop is conveniently located near the reception desk and bookings for tours, car rentals, dinner reservations, water sports, are made at a dedicated activities desk.
A short walk through the open reception area brings you to the lovely beach area for soaking up the sun or having a bite to eat at the beach restaurant which offers breakfast, lunch, snacks, and dinner.
The beach bar is open air and the relaxing atmosphere encourages relaxation as you gaze upon the gentle waves lapping against the shoreline.
The pool lies just opposite but is clearly no match for the clear turquoise water and lovely stretch of white sand beach that complement the hotel.
Butterfly Beach Hotel in Barbados is a great hotel to consider for cheap Caribbean vacations. With the money you will be saving on accommodation, you can splurge on dinner at a nice restaurant like Champers or you can plan your next vacation to Barbados.
However you flip the coin, it's a win-win!
